Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.
At Affirm, we’re reinventing consumer finance for the better. That goal infuses every part of what we do, from the moment a user sees Affirm for the first time all the way through to their final payment. As Affirm grows, we are diversifying our financial product portfolio and providing more ways for customers to interact with Affirm. As the Product Lead for our Fraud, Trust and Safety, Membership and Identity teams, you’ll focus on developing a single view of each customer and the various products and services they use. You’ll lead a team of PMs while also driving the vision and strategy for the area. You’ll build features and platforms that make it seamless and easy for customers to deepen their engagement with Affirm, feeding into a holistic member journey.
You’ll be a passionate voice for the user for the Trust and Safety org, and you’ll bring that perspective to the entire product organization (and the rest of the company). You need to be data driven, and quantitative but you’ll also have the intuition and courage to know how to move ahead when numbers don’t tell the whole story. Most importantly, you’ll bring deep customer empathy, balanced with a laser focus on delivering the right functionality to serve those needs.
As a product leader at Affirm, you’ll own a number of end-to-end roadmaps from ideation through to post-launch assessment and iteration. You’ll be a Jack- or Jill-of-all-trades and a master of one: making the most impactful new features, products, and experiences come to life, on-time. You’ll own the strategy and vision for your product areas, and work with a dizzying number of cross-functional partners to make great things happen. And you’ll do it all by striking the perfect balance between business goals, customer needs, and technical requirements.What You'll Do
